The Museum of Art & History publishes books on subjects of local historic interest and exhibition catalogues. History journals, books, and exhibition catalogues can be purchased at the Museum Store during regular visiting hours, or at MAH’s online shop. As of 2013, the MAH is also producing an online history journal.

The Fred D. McPherson Jr. Publications Fund is a source of funding for MAH publications. The first McPherson Fund book was Santa Cruz County Place Names, by Donald Thomas Clark.

You can access a complete index of publications produced by the Fund here (PDF).

Guidelines for authors submitting material for consideration by the History Publications Committee can be found here (PDF).
